How to provide feedback
Please for specific issues set a new topic in the Beta section (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=15.0). For general open discussion feel free to use this thread.

Or use the feedback form in the AV program or in the SafeZone browser.

Changes from V2016 Beta 4:
- Bug fixes
- Fixed issue when installed expired paid product and it was immediately downgraded to Free
- Fixed Passwords plugin in IE
- Android version of Passwords is available for testing: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.avast.android.passwordmanager

Known issues:
- Account screens are English only
- Online Security plugin isn't installed for Firefox 64-bit
- Missing links on the SafeZone browser startpage
- Missing translations on some screens

Changes from V2015:

NEW: Passwords - Avast can now manage your passwords and generate strong passwords for you. Just one password to remember.
 - checks your passwords security
 - stores your passwords securely
 - includes browser extensions for easier logging in and form filling
 - generates strong passwords

NEW: SafeZone browser - Replaced the SafeZone for safer shopping and banking

   - Pay Mode: runs automatically on banking sites (This isolates the session and protects it from possible keyloggers or other malicious software secretly lurking on your computer. With Pay Mode you can perform all your financial transactions in peace, without fear of your password or other personal details being stolen. Pay Mode can be also turned on manually directly via browser UI.)

   - Optionally, some extensions such as Ad Blocker and Video Downloader (potentially useful as SafeZone doesn't support add-ons for security reasons).

NEW: User interface
- More space for content, easy control

NEW: Feedback possible directly from program
- report bugs, feature requests and other suggestions easier

IMPROVED: Home network security
now detects more router vulnerabilites and shows more details
IMPROVED: Installation - it should be now faster and less obtrusive.
+ Many other minor tweaks and fixed

Avast cleaner:
http://files.avast.com/beta9x/avastclear.exe

It should be possible to install this version on top of your existing avast! installation (all settings should be preserved).

To report BSODs, crashes or any other none trivial problems please use new SupportPackage generating tool.
- http://utils.support.tools.avast.com/tools/support/utils/avastsupport.exe

Instructions how to use it can be easily found:
- https://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB33#artTitle


We are looking forward for your feedback!

Thank you
Avast team

Why are you still offering stupid Chrome on EVERY SINGLE bloody program update? What makes you think I want the damn thing after I've declined it 10 freaking times so far!?

Make a damn checkup of already installed 3rd party browsers like Firefox. If user already has that one, what's the chance he'll want the damn Chrome? Common sense.

I could be wrong, but from memory.

I thought there was a previous agreement not to mess with the system restore size as they were going to try/implement something else.

Apparently no, because all my systems with BETA were stuck at 3% even though I know I've set them to 10%.

Clean install: everything work fine, except two things:

- in passwords manager when show password and show password history it's ask for my master password every time
- no passwords manager, video downloader icon in safezone, just ad-blocker

Don't know if I'm just lucky, or if it is the fact I'm using AIS instead of the free version, but I didn't see any Chrome offers for a very long time.

Yes, this is annoying as hell.

Seems I'm also lucky, same here with Avast Free. (I certainly don't miss it... ;))

The bug with passwords and undecided program "weak", "average" or "strong". When entering/saving password it says "weak", when saved it becomes "average"  :)
